The state bought a slogan for $260,000 from a PR firm ("New Jersey: We'll Win You Over."), then had buyers remorse and decided to hold a contest to let state residents choose a new slogan: "New Jersey, Come See For Yourself."
Well, it turns out the state isn't happy with that one either.
State tourism officials said legal issues led them to scrap the latest slogan, explaining that West Virginia and other states previously used "Come See For Yourself."Some people might see this as a boondoggle, but I see it as something the state could capitalize on. Why not incorporate this third stab at a slogan into the slogan itself.
The clever AP headline writer suggested: "New Jersey: We're Not So Good With Slogans."
Here are a few more ideas from yours truly.

- New Jersey: Three strikes and your in
- New Jersey: We like to do everything in threes
